Do you remember a few months ago when I asked if God ever whispered important truths to you?
I then told you of how the Lord sometimes does this for me… He knows my heart well.
Patience is a big thing for me…
I occasionally lack patience with people, in traffic, for food to cook, for my plans to work out, and honestly, sometimes with God.
The other night I was praying for patience… praying for the Lord’s hand in a situation… praying that He would hear me… and praying for Him to work.
Quite frankly, I often pray like God is on my timeline, like He has no idea what is going on in my life, and that I have future vision allowing me to see the best thing for myself. I’m learning day after day that nothing could be farther from the truth.
While praying that night, I heard the Lord say, “Ash, I am patient with you, so be patient on me”,
WOW, that blew my mind.
How many times have I wandered away from the cross or the truth and how many times has the Lord been right there calling my name to come back….
I PRAY that my faith in God would be shown by the amount of patience I have in His way and timing.
Patience is something I need to grow in but I am sure thankful I have the best teacher out there.
